MS: Song to the tune, 'Caledonian Hunt's Delight'

Thus bold, independent, unconquer'd & free,
Her bright course of glory for ever shall run;
For brave Caledonia immortal must be,
I'll prove it from Euclid as clear as the sun:
Rectangle-triangle, the figure we'll chuse,
The upright is Chance, & old Time is the base;
But brave Caledonia's the hypothenuse,
Then ergo, she'll match them, & match them always.
